Body Shaping 101: It’s Time For a Truth Moment

Would you believe that the first step to getting and keeping your dream body doesn’t come from exercise?  Or the next big diet?  Guess what the first step is in creating the kind of body you are proud of….

 

Your attitude towards your body

In other words, your beliefs, self-esteem (view of yourself), your level of persistence, and your attitude towards your body AND yourself.

Your thoughts lead to your beliefs;

Your beliefs lead to your lifestyle behaviors and choices;

So, how you think about yourself is crucial to the body you create.

Change Your Mindset for Success

How do you change your mindset?  Ask yourself:

  1. What beliefs do you hold about your body?
  2. How do you feel about your personal health?
  3. What do you do to practice self-care?  This includes anything you do to increase and maintain your health and overall personal happiness.
  4. How would you feel if you never created or maintained a comfortable body weight or body?  Where are these feelings and beliefs coming from?
  5. How would NOT creating a fit healthy body hinder you from being happy, comfortable in your skin, and living life to the fullest?
  6. What are other ways of reacting to NOT creating the type of body you want to maintain?
  7. Write down some positive statements about yourself and repeat them daily.  A suggestion I like to make to clients is to remember what is good about them.  I aim to help my clients learn their strengths and use them in their affirmations.  For instance:

“Even though I haven’t reached my dream weight, I am still a talented coach; I’m adored; I’m an encourager; I bring smiles to people’s faces; and I help clients develop into the kind of person they want to become each day.”

 

 

No matter what your body shape, you are still who you are on the inside; you are still lovable and attractive.  Think about the positive people that are in your life; see yourself as they see you- but own it.

 

 

Ask important others around you (that you trust) what good qualities you possess and why they feel you possess those qualities; this exercise is sometimes enough to see why you are significant and good, regardless of body shape.

 

 

Take the challenge- what’s good about you and why?  Feel free to leave your answers in the comments section below
